LOL, the first few pictures I took by using P&S flash reflect directly. Eyes didn't change. What type of monitor are you using ? LOL.

I'm not a fan of these in particular, but I can definitely see the intensification of the red coloration.

I didn't notice about the face, thank you for point that one out, I will try to improve on the next batch.

Here is the lastest picture of my fry from the 4th breeder male.

this one only about 5months old. at around 2.5" to 3" hopefully he will be better.

WOW. Crazy progression, especially to that 5th gen. Is the finnage still really elongated on that guy? I liked the dorsal/anal on the 4th gen a lot.

Thank you, the 5th gen, has full body red, the fins was very nice until I added some bigger hap as a tank mate so his fins got damage.
